Hi, I'm a little confused. I have IgG and OC bands in my CSF. Serum is clear.
Does the presence of IgG indicate a past infection? Is IgG non-specific and relevant for any infection or imflammatory attack?
Also, what are OC Band's made of? IgGs? Proteins? Antibodies? Do the bands show a range of anitbodies? (Antibodies are formed after an attack, yes?)
And also, what are IgM's? (I think I have that right - the "cells" doing the fighting?)
I should have asked my neuro yesterday, but I forgot. I've tried to look online but I'm just confused. If anybody in the know could shed some light that would be great.
Biology was never my strongest point... Infact I'm embarrased that i dont know the answer to these questions!
